First we get Monday off for Labor Day and now we get a bonus technology-related holiday on Friday?! Pinch me, I must be drea—ow, I said pinch me, not slice into my forearm with your fingernail. Ah, great. I’m bleeding. It’s a figure of speech. How could I be dreaming? Who types in their dreams?
Back to the issue at hand: Friday is “Dress Up Like Steve Jobs Day”—a holiday of sorts manufactured by iPhone Life magazine, per the publication’s Facebook page.
We have all been instructed “to wear jeans and a black t-shirt for one day on Friday, September 9th, 2011,” though as we all know, the truly authentic outfit would be a black, long-sleeve cashmere and silk mock turtleneck, Levi’s 501 jeans, and gray New Balance sneakers (style #992).
That’s a total financial outlay of around $400. Steve has “Apple money,” though, so maybe the jeans and black t-shirt thing is easier. And aside from paying homage to the Apple co-founder, iPhone Life promises that photos of the best outfits will be published in an upcoming issue.
I can also guarantee that TIME will publish the best photos in an upcoming issue of our own as well, although the people here who actually make those decisions may pretend like they don’t know what you’re talking about. Be persistent, though! Ow, what’s with the fingernails again?! This time they’re just digging into my arm altogether! Okay, fine. No photos. We can’t publish them. Everyone dress up, still. I’ll print the good ones out.
